When you want to know why
-women & minorities leave medicine
-why research lacks data to serve needs of anyone not white & male
-why different mortality rates in patients by gender, race, SES

this is why

This is #MedBikini#professionalism” again

Is insidious
but highly effective
-different access

As women, LGBTQ, minorities, disabled enter or advance in medicine, this professor’s public stance will be cited to mislabel having #ethics as “lacking #professionalism…
#medbikini is not one article
=attitude of many physicians
=drives this

We saw this happen with @ayshakhoury and @uche_blackstock and so many others. It especially happens at midcareer to WOC, especially black. Also if Muslim, LGBTQ, disabled, #mentalhealth

#Germany #Kassel (#Hessen) #Refugee #violence

A paramedic hits a Syrian man in the face who is fixed on a stretcher, police officers nearby do nothing - a video of a deployment in a refugee accommodation in Kassel in November 2020.
The processes recorded by a surveillance camera made "stunned and affected," said Kassel's police chief Konrad Stelzenbach. "Violence against a fixed and thus defenseless person cannot be tolerated - regardless of what happened before."
The police officers had to "intervene with all determination and consistency," said Stelzenbach. The police are also responsible for criminals. The public prosecutor is now investigating the paramedic for assault. Three police officers are also being investigated.

"For years, our communities have been saying '#RefugeesWelcome' while the U.S. government looked for every way to keep them out. Today, the America that believes we are stronger together has prevailed."

Faith leaders respond to @POTUS' EO: #WeAreWelcomers
"While all of these changes in Washington are wonderful, Trump’s policies are still being implemented at the southern border. We owe it to all #refugees—and to ourselves—to center the dignity of human life every single policy." Elissa Diaz, IIC Co-Chair #RefugeesWelcome
"Rebuilding the resettlement system the prior administration nearly broke won’t be easy... [but] the president has made clear he intends to get there. We’ll do all we can to help — and to hold the administration accountable." @melanienezer of @HIASrefugees #RefugeesWelcome

If you want to understand a woman, look at her mother - at least true of me

My mom? As a new immigrant to America, when she encountered an unfair Eurocentric rule from her English Lit grad program? She wrote a paper & got the rule changed

Owned her power
My mom and I are the same in core values but opposite externally. She uses maybe 1/100th of the words that I do and is intensely private. I am out climbing literal mountains while she prefers to stay in and read books and my dad’s #engineering journals.

My mom is an introvert who thinks 10x before speaking w/ surgical precision, educated by German nuns & British educational system
We are Urdu-speaking

She is fearless in face of patriarchy

It runs in the family. Have strong, activist #womeninleadership role models in #Pakistan

On November 29, Greek authorities removed 18 asylum seekers who had managed to reach #Lesbos, put them on a life raft and then left them adrift in the Aegean, despite increased EU scrutiny over #pushbacks, a new @derspiegel investigation reveals 1/…
2/ One of them is Angela, 28, from Burundi. On the 29th, she met and was photographed (left pic) by a Greek university professor walking with his wife in Lesbos. She is now in Izmir (middle and right pics with a newspaper showing the date) where we interviewed her
3/ Based on interviews with some of the asylum seekers, audiovisual material captured by hidden phones by migrants, shared with us by Norwegian NGO @ABR and verified by our researchers, and eye-witness accounts, we reconstructed how the operation took place

As a physician, can say this about doctor culture in the U.S.: we are a socially stunted puerile bunch easily manipulated by sales & marketing ppl or by metrics of competition, obsessed with status, prestige, ego..

...not my doctor friends...but we hang out at the margins.
The high school level drama that plays out in hospitals, then the replica, amplified, on #MedTwitter is 😱 No wonder our profession kills so many patients when we are so busy policing on pettiness & ignoring standards of quality, safety, population health…
There are many reasons why I am hanging up the stethoscope, one of which is that I cannot in good faith go into any clinical setting and feel confident about “first do no harm” - The system is too misaligned, not driving quality, safe results

Then, the human dynamics are

A truly unbelievable story: A #refugee child drowned in the Aegean off the coast of Samos Sunday. Now his father faces criminal charges of endangerment and years in prison. His lawyer calls this a cruel twist of the law. This their story/ 1… via @derspiegel
2/ A dinghy carrying 25 migrants run in trouble while nearing a treacherous cape off Samos. The migrants were trying to reach the Greek island from the Turkish coast to request asylum.
3/ The child was with his father on the boat. The father survived, but was arrested by the Greek Coast Guard and now faces charges of exposing a minor to danger that resulted in death. If convicted, under Greek law, he faces a minimum prison sentence of 6 years.

1. #HAI, working in two refugee camps in Delhi, made a visit to Anganwa Pabuji Ka Mandir refugee camp in Jodhpur. There are 21 refugee camps in the city and all in deplorable conditions. #HAI will now collaborate with UJAS, a local organisation working with them for decades.
2, This camp, located in the outskirts, is seven years old, but still lacks facilities, including sanitation, drinking water, electricity, education & health facilities, a better access and so on. Consequently, the quality of life is poorer than even many slums. #refugee
3. Shelters are still poor, not able to provide required protection and dignity to inmates. There are only 16 toilets for a population of approx. 1,250 people. Consequently, open defecation is a norm in this camp too. #refugee

Hear, hear

As a confident WOC willing to enter male dominated, non-diverse spaces (women >20% of my class & rare in tech)

I hear from men and women:
I take up too much space, I talk too much, etc, etc.

If invited 6x to podcasts in 2019, is that "too much"?
Who decides?
In the marketplace of ideas, lack of women o BIPOC in a space, what is the metric of too much/little? A recent thread on leadership coaching specific to #WIM: importance of having manners if one wants a seat at the table

How about results as the metric?
I'm successful as an advocate, having been a Health Advocate of the Year in 2012 by @Drsforamerica in 2012. Part of being an advocate is bringing issues to the forefront that may not be the priority of decision makers. One communicates on it (albeit, at times, relentlessly)

Just in: @GendroOrg piece – Towards the real-time inclusion of sex-and age-disaggregated #data in #pandemic responses – published @GlobalHealthBMJ

Enjoy your fresh #globalhealth read!

@heidari_s @ClaudiaAhumadaG @ziyodaadoyiz…
DYK, that only 1/3 of all #COVID19 cases are reported to WHO with #data on sex & age?

If we want comprehensive & effective #publichealth measures to fight the pandemic, we need systematically collect & report #genderdata.

How? Check out our paper👉 Image
Data on #sexdifferences, #gender, age, geographies, #accesstohealth are essential from the outset and throughout different phases of #COVID19 progression.

More about prerequisites in pandemic response read our paper @GlobalHealthBMJ👇 Image

Delighted to announce the release of my new report for @CFR_org, “The Day After in Venezuela: Delivering Security and Dispensing Justice.” Should @NicolasMaduro relinquish power, the US and likeminded partners will need a plan to reinstate the rule of law.…
#2. International actors have not planned sufficiently for stabilizing the security environment or fostering #transitionaljustice, which could itself be an important lever to push regime operatives toward defection or at least meaningful negotiations.
#3. Aftermath of Maduro’s departure could see conflict among armed factions, unstable political coalitions, corruption, and a #refugee and #migrant outflow. US should anticipate such fallout and identify opps now to ensure that any transition begets the restoration of #democracy.

For the 75th time the @UN General Assembly opened today, but for the 1st time, world leaders are not in the same physical space. In all the UN mtgs I have attended the speeches were secondary to the back-room meetings, cutting deals between nations.
I can't imagine how difficult this moment is for Secretary-General @antonioguteres2 -- today was supposed to entail grand displays of celebration of the @UN 75th anniversary. Instead, pre-taped speeches are airing, and political leaders are zooming in from 200 nations.
Meanwhile, here's what's on the @unGa @UN list for global action:
- #SDGs
- Global economic disaster
- #COVID19 #pandemic
- Ongoing, massive #refugee crisis
- #ClimateChange
- Syria
- Iran/nuclear
- South China Seas
- Yemen
- Extreme weather/humanitarian relief
- UN survival

On 3rd anniversary of #Rohingya exodus from #Myanmar, @OHCHRAsia urges nation to "address root causes" as it "failed to implement transparent & fully independent accountability measures for serious #HumanRights violations & possible international crimes"
On the 1st anniversary of #Rohingya mass exodus from #Myanmar to #Bangladesh, I had visited the #refugee camps, seen them living in cramped, filthy conditions without work or systematic education. 3 years now, conditions worsened, #repatriation & negotiations practically stalled ImageImageImageImage
When brave #Myanmar citizens like @thinzashunleiyi @maung_saungkha @Thet_Swe_Win in nation speak up for #Rohingyas esp 3 years ago, they risked & still risk being targeted, labelled as traitors or anti-Myanmar. Such activists defending Rohingyas few & far between inside Myanmar

1-I’ve been covering the #refugee #migrant crisis for 5 years and I thought I’d write down a few of my experiences following the largest migration of people the world has ever known. I hope this thread raises awareness of the complexity around the subject. pics ©_edwardcrawford Migrants wearing face masks...
2-What I find interesting about the refugee/migrant crisis, particularly on social media. Is that people with little or no experience seem to be the most vocal and convinced of their opinions. Image
3-I’ve covered the migrantion crisis for 5 years & worked on the ground extensively. I’ve visited dozens of refugee camps & illegal migrant encampments. I’ve spent hundreds of hours with refugees & migrants. Listening to their stories and trying to make sense of this crisis. Image

THREAD. Some home truths and perspective on the negative #refugee media stories and alarming UK Government rhetoric on this issue. Some numbers and facts below to prove point, but let's remember we are talking about human beings here. It should not have to come to this. 1/9
📌85% of world's 79.5 million forcibly displaced people are hosted in developing countries. Not #Europe. Not #Kent.

📌40% of forcibly displaced people and 51% of refugees are #children. These children are seeking protection. They are not stealing jobs or services. 2/9
📌39% are hosted in just 5 countries. The UK is nowhere near this list (more below).

📌68% of those seeking protection come from just 5 countries experiencing oppression or conflict. Google them. 3/9
